Great fucking fight!
He didn't walk through Bika like he did with Lacy.
I did hate that because HBO has a deal with him that they made favorable comments toward him. Like when they said early on that Bika will probably get a warning for holding when it was Joe that was holding most of the fight.
The point taken away from Bika for the head butt was bullshit too.
However, I must give it up to Calzaghe who was obviously being depleted by decent opponent by a good showing for the judges in the last round.
Calzaghe said he watched a lot of Leonard growing up and it showed (even in his showboating).
One note: Many say that Calzaghe is a slapper and....he is. However, in this fight he went away from that and he needs keep to slapping like when he slapped Jeff Lacy silly.
His slapping style wins fights and he should keep at that and not venture off.
Now it looks like he will come over here to fight. He said in the interview afterwards that he was sorry this fight was not a very impressive showing and....it wasn't but he won. I think that's the marketing side of boxing.
He also said he wants to fight Bernard Hopkins but he's retired. Funny thing is that would work for him with beating a still popularcomingoutofretirement boxer.
I sure would watch.
Unfortunately....not on PPV though.
